The Tony-winning stage adaptation of the classic Green Day album, American Idiot is in its final weeks on the Broadway stage. You can still catch the show from April 5 - 24 with the Green Day frontman starring as St. Jimmy.

About the show: The smash-hit, Tony Award®-winning American Idiot is Broadway’s most exciting new musical. The New York Times calls it, “thrilling and emotionally charged, as moving as anything on Broadway!” Based on Green Day’s Grammy® Award-winning multi-platinum album and featuring the smash hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, “Holiday” and “21 Guns”, American Idiot is the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their search for meaning in a post 9-11 world leads them on the most exhilarating journey of the Broadway season.
